see dzhokhar tsarnaev just after the murder of an m.i.t. police officer. >> first the headline from the suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev, we acted alone. a u.s. government source quotes the surviving suspect saying the older brother was the master mind and they had no international ties to terror groups. he also says the men were motivated by radical islam and the jihadist goal of waging a holy war. they learned to make their bombs from readily available instructions on the internet. deborah has the latest from new york. >> wolf, we can tell you investigators are painting a much fuller picture of the parents and the life this tamerlan tsarnaev was living. his pull here in the united states and his life over in the russian caucasus. what we can tell you this morning is that the m.i.t. officer that was shot to death did not radio into dispatch to request a description of the suspect and he did not alert dispatch he was responding to the two men who apparently came up to him totally unaware. he was shot four to five times according to a source. it took at least nearly 13 minutes to actually f
our privacy during this difficult time. the surviving boston bombing suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is improving in a local hospital. that comes a day after a federal judge found him to be alert, mentally competent, and lucid at a bedside hearing. cnn's brooke baldwin is joining us now from beth israel deaconess medical center here in boston. brooke, what do we know about the suspect's health? >> reporter: wolf, we now know from the fbi and folks here at beth israel hospital here in boston that 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev has been upgraded from serious condition now to fair condition. what does that mean? if you listen to our chief medical correspondent sanjay gupta he basically explains that means tsarnaev's vital signs have stabilized. things like heart pressure, blood pressure, and heart rate for example. we know he had an operation on saturday so a couple days out his condition has been improving which obviously is good news. that of course is predicated upon whether or not he decides to continue cooperating with investigators but also that his medical condition clearly helps
government official and this is a preliminary investigation but dzhokhar tsarnaev is saying the following to investigators. first of all, there were no foreign terrorist groups involved. that this was two brothers acting on their own. dzhokhar, not surprisingly is saying he was following his older brother tamerlan and tamerlan was the one who was the driving force behind this. in addition, there's an indication from the interviews that the brothers were self radicalized on-line. they were getting information from videos on-line, you tube videos on-line but not from communication or e-mail the way the ft. hood shooter was but they were very much self starters, self radicalized. the older brother, it seems from preliminary investigation, to have been motivated by jihad, traditional jihad motivation and political implications that they are under attack and jihad dis need to fight back. this is from preliminary interviews with this individual, with dzhokhar tsarnaev. >> the interviews have been limited. >> very limited. everything needs to be checked out. the investigators will follow up. the
throughoue israel hospital dzhokhar march tsarnaev is now charged with using a weapon of mass destruction by means of explosive device. the white house says tsarnaev will not be treated as enemy combatant. >> we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice under u.s. law. united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions. >> the 19-year-old remains in serious but stable condition. fbi agents say he has multiple injuries including gunshot wounds to the head, neck, legs and hand and spent considerable time in surgery friday night. in response to the arraignment. attorney general eric holder said in a statement, quote: although our investigation is ongoing today's charges bring successful end for a tragic week for the city of boston and for our country. meantime tsarnaev's life has been saved, guarded, and arraigned all in the same hospital where his brother tamerlan died and where a number of victims from last monday's blast continue to recover. >> recovery from this scij solid -- psychologic solid a marathon. as you heard from my rehabilitation physici
tonight that dzhokhar tsarnaev has told investigators he and his brother acted alone, they learned to build pressure cooker bombs over the internet, and were motivated by a desire to defend islam because of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. now, that early reporting may prove to be wrong. it may prove that the suspect retracts those statements later or maybe he's lying or he might be confused. but there is a small but significant cornerstone to build from that was not there before. we have left the realm of pure, complete speculation inside which would be frankly irresponsible to address questions of motives in the first place. in the case of dzhokhar tsarnaev even as we learn more about him and his life leading up to the bombing and what he is telling investigators, the question of why is intensely mysterious. if you spend some time on his twitter page as i did on the day it was first reported that he was a suspect, you'll find a teenager who mostly seems interested in stuff like weed, hip hop, girls, cars. it does not read like the twitter feed of someone who has completely devot
who has been all over this story. j dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged in a civilian court given the debate we have been talking about this this morning. that will be happening to him? >> no question. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound
the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t
